Dylan’s Candy Bar
Project Name: Dylan’s Candy Bar
Project Location: Chicago, IL
Project Date: September, 2015
Dylan’s Candy Bar in Chicago, Illinois, is nestled amongst the hustle and bustle of the famous Magnificent Mile. Christened as the modern day Willy Wonka Factory, Dylan’s Candy Bar caters to all ages. Featuring a giant lollipop tree and over 7,000 confections, children of any age can delight in satisfying their sugar craving among the whimsical décor. For the adults indulging their inner child, candy-themed drinks at the Candy Cocktail Bar offer a playful twist on satiating your sweet tooth. To accommodate the millions of patrons who visit the 2-story candy emporium each year and balance the bright, fanciful décor, durable, neutral floor textiles were selected. The multi-purpose, over 6,000 square foot “retail-tainment” space features a combination of carpet tile, ceramic tile, LVT, VCT, and sheet vinyl to provide design continuity as well as define each individual area. Providing a neutral canvas on which childish wonder abounds, the muted flooring selections put the paintbrush of whimsical creativity in the hand of the visitor and enhance the candy store’s unique environment.
